Poem "Ancient Language", by Hannah Stephenson

Always wonderful to read more poems that talk about breath! Here is this one:


Ancient Language

by Hannah Stephenson


If you stand at the edge of the forest

and stare into it

every tree at the edge will blow a little extra

oxygen toward you


It has been proven

Leaves have admitted it


The pines I have known

have been especially candid


One said

that all breath in this world

is roped together


that breathing is

the most ancient language




From Poetry of Presence, Grayson Books 2017
